" A wry, crackly voice. . . . Fine, funny, and very moving pictures of contemporary life [from] a writer of enormous talent." -- "The New York Times" " Brisk, ironic . . . scalpel-sharp. . . . A funny, cohesive, and moving collection of stories." -- "The New York Times Book Review" " Astonishing. . . . Moore is so good at trapping each moment in perfect, precise detail, so masterful at cynicism and wryness that her moments of poignancy and sweetness catch us completely off guard." -- "San Francisco Chronicle" " Sharp, flicking, on-target . . . the work of a sorcerer' s apprentice. Moore casts a cruel, mischievous spell." -- "Vanity Fair" " Trenchant, funny tales. . . . Moore is much more than another chronicler of the chronically out-of-sync relations between American men and women. She writes with urgency and pace." -- "People"
